|9:45 AM||Brian Jagos - CA - CA z/VM Products Implement VMSES/E
CA has a history of acquiring products and along with that, installation and service methods. When every vendor has its own method and some companies like CA have multiple methods, it can be a burden to learn and remember all the different procedures to install, upgrade and service products. To help simplify matters, CA is implementing IBM VMSES/E as the method to be used to install, upgrade and service z/VM system products. Brian Jagos will give an overview of how CA ultimately decided to use VMSES/E and how it works with CA products.
